We resume our article on the basics of black jack. In Part One we reviewed the approach of blackjack, hitting, holding with the current hand and how to double down. In part two we’ll talk about splitting, surrendering and insurance.

Split: if a gambler is assigned 2 cards of the same amount (two eights for instance) he may break them up to create 2 separate hands. If you decide to split your hand you’ll need to lay a new wager equal to the initial bet.

Surrender: Some betting houses will permit gamblers to surrender the cards they have been dealt along with half of the original wager they made before the croupier looking at their hand. Once again it is vital to ask the croupier for clarification on the chemin de fer table game rules or look at the rules area on the internet betting house you’re wagering on.

Insurance: When the dealers exposed card is an Ace competitors have the ability to purchase insurance. You’ll place half of the initial wager prior to the dealer looking at his cards; if the dealer has blackjack you will come away with a win on the insurance bet but still lose the original sum. Sadly if the croupier doesn’t have blackjack the player loses the insurance. It is a risk but one that is absolutely worth it, if used as part of a smart strategy.

As soon as a competitor has stood or busted by going over 21 the croupier will reveal his cards and will go on to deal themselves cards until 1 of the following things has appeared: if they have surpassed seventeen, a dealer will not typically draw another card due to the likelihood of going bust, if he has drawn twenty one or if he has gone bust.
